Porch Life by Teresa Bosko 2017 Plywood panel painting 48"x24" Big Art 'bout Plants

Porch Life   

The summer of 2017 found me longing to escape, to find an oasis of relaxed anticipation, the likes of which I hadn't felt in so long.  Restless to be thrust into some kind of exotic, faraway affair of lost weekends and tropical vacations, I was adrift in daydreams and adolescent fantasies, visualizing my vacation bungalow tucked away under a canopy of foliage, several steps to the sand.  There was a place long ago, oh, when I was 6 or 7, that held all the magical qualities that now kept my thoughts captive, a place where I really knew who I was, deep down, like only a child can.  I thought about the breeze that blew off the lake, filling the screened-in porch with the wild scents of blue gill and seaweed; and how, on the sills, the potted aloe and cactus played co-conspirators in my late-summer adventure.
